KYM Forum Thanks Awards 2012

For a second year in a row, the Forums have been left out of the Thanks Awards. So, for a second year in a row, the Forums shall conduct their own Thanks Awards!

Essentially this award ceremony will be divided up into two parts;
~Nominate, where users will nominate users for the various different categories. Users can nominate multiple people for the same category, so don’t worry. Also, additional categories can be suggested by the users during this part. This phase will last two days.
~Vote: The most straightforward phase, the users will vote via a Google Poll. The users will have to identify themselves as their username in these polls, else the vote will not be counted. (Don’t worry, we will not make the viewing of who voted for who possible) This phase will last 3 days.

The categories are as follows:
~Shipper; For people who make your favorite Ships.
~Family Photographer; For the people who make your favorite Family Photo’s
~Artist; For people who create and share their artwork via Art Threads or Art Thread for Everyone
~News Reporter; For people who spawn good conversation from the news they share
~Game Master; For either Dungeon Masters or notable Players.
~Backseat Web Designer; For people who give good suggestions in the Site Related Section.
~Most Helpful; For that one guy who helps you and the people around you.
~Knucklehead; For that one guy who annoys you and the people around you.
~Best Forum Moderator; Self explanatory, for the most helpful and efficient Forum Moderator (or any Moderator with Forum Powers) you deem worthy.

Note: If any of the categories fails to gain over 3 Nominees, I will be removing the category.

Keep in mind your choices and votes should reflect all the activity in 2012, so reflect your nominations off of that overall time span. (So no last minute Ass Kissing you hear me!)

The Nominations start now and end in 48 Hours!

Disclaimer; This Contest is Just For Fun and should be treated as such. Please do not be hurt or offended if you wind up losing a category you want or winning a category you don’t want.

@ Liam
Karnella was nominated for best artist of 2011, but has been gone for most of 2012, and thus not qualify for this year.

Note: If any of the categories fails to gain over 3 Nominees, I will be removing the category.

During the regular thanks awards, there were several titles which were simply decided by one or two users. There was no real competition in those sections, but that doesn’t take away that those people didn’t deserve the award. Unfortunately this did result in some awards not being handed out, as they were dominated by a staff member (staff couldn’t win).

But based on how it’s getting along so far, I don’t think you’ll come across that problem.


Artist: Ox Doxon.
News Reporter: Katie
Game Master: Dark Ermac
Backseat Web Designer: Evan Hechenbach

@RandomMan: You have a point, but I don’t think it would really feel right if there was only a one-man-race.

But I will guess I will change the minimum requirement to 3 or above instead of 4 or above.

And with that, every section besides “News Reporter” has met the minimum quota.

Crap, I don’t merit anything listed.

Therefore I’m a nobody in every aspect on this site? Oh dear…


Anyway:

~Shipper: Gamzee FTW 5ever.

~Family Photographer: I don’t visit the family photo thread often enough to really say anyone in particular here, but isn’t this question going to have biased answers? People will just vote for who put them in the most FPs.

~Artist: Natsuru Springfield, I like your art and your streams.

~News Reporter: Well, Katie C. is always reporting everything around here, they do snap at people if anybody talks about how “this isn’t news” “I don’t care/nobodycares.jpg” but with good reason, I suppose. So they definetly get conversations about news topics going, but it can be other people too.

~Game Master: N/A; no idea. (Perhaps MDF or Syndic.)

~Backseat Web Designer: This is a difficult one, there are many various people who bring up a good idea, but I suppose it would have to be those who brought up an idea that was actually chosen… but I can’t think of anyone right now.

~Most Helpful: well, I’m not sure, because I don’t get help often from specific people, but I’d pick… nah, got no one in particular, sorry.

Then again, in general, I’d say BSoD. He’s pretty good to everyone.

~Knucklehead: I’m unsure on this one, it’d have to be trolls, really, people who don’t engage in the discussion properly and derail threads often.
and you all thought I was going to say Nair… pffft

~Best Forum Moderator: This is a tough one beca- Verbose.

Well, I say Verbose, but that’s because he’s cool, he’s good to everyone, efficient, and more! (Buy today!) but seriously, Verbose you’re a great mod, but I’m not sure if you’re the very best. (Like no one ever was)

A quick sweep of the Shipping Thread’s first 30 pages (Oh god my eyes) revealed Gamzee, Lich, Vazquez, Ric, RandomMan, Natsuru, Ashbot, and Patrick to be the most active contributors. So same thing goes, I am nominating them all.

Time to dig deeper.

If you know what I mean…

Just a tip, don’t visit the dreaded page 35, otherwise you might be scarred.

Oh wait a sec, just checked the page, you were there, you’re already scarred.

@Moargun: To answer your Question Mark, though Kalmo started the Family Photo thread and contributed a lot, nearly all of his contributions where added last year. So he doesn’t exactly qualify.

I would nominate multiples, but I’m just gonna do one user for each of these.
-Artist: Natsuru (Most consistent artist)
-Most Helpful: BSod/Verbose (It’s true)
-Knucklehead: Ann Hiro (Knucklehead could be switched with a more offensive title .)
-Best Forum Moderators: Verbose (You’re the best, around, an no one’s ever gonna keep ya down)

Edited some reasons in there.

I might suggest to remove the Knucklehead award. It’s basically just a “Who’s the worst user” award, not really something to call a “prize”.

I am the reining champ of Knucklehead!!!!
I won last years “Most Hated User” award!

Adding to the Shipper Nominations based off the rest of the shipping thread… Doctorhobo, Bruelock, Captain Howel (Captain Troper), Internet Meme (Flute?), Mexx, Katia, and Zarathh. Added to the nominations.

And Damn, that thread took me the entire day to go though…


@The Knucklehead One: It is far less harsh than what we had last year, “Most Hated User”, and nobody complained about the contest or results back then. In fact it was intended to be more playful than anything else, so I will keep it.


Also, roughly 24 more hours until the Nominations close.

Knucklehead could be seen as a term of endearment (although Chowz didn’t seem to take my nomination very well. Sorry.)
